« How To Be An Ass In Front Of A Grieving Family | Main | PMS = Poor Man Suffering »


For obvious reasons, my mood hasn't been the best lately and I think that is reflected on my entries these past few days. kennysia.com used to be known for its humourous entries. But hey, if I'm not laughing myself, how can I make everyone else laugh?

Heh. Maybe now its your turn to cheer me up!

Remember a while ago I wrote about how absurd it is that UK tabloid News of the World actually employed so-called professional lip readers to decode the Queen and Prince Charles conversation at his and Camilla Parker-Bowles' wedding? Click on that link if you haven't read that entry yet.

Here's an excerpt if you're too fucking lazy to exercise your finger and click on that link for your convenience.

How the heck can they simply decide what people are saying just by looking at a video? How do they even know they're speaking English? For all I know, they could be conversing in Hokkien.

Hokkien Version



Well guess what?

Now, you too, can guess lip-read what exactly was said between the Queen and Prince during that royal wedding! kennysia.com proudly presents lipreader.kennysia.com

THE QUEEN AND PRINCE LIP-READING GAME!



Here's how it works:

  1. Go to lipreader.kennysia.com
  2. Enter what you think was said between those two.
  3. Save the generated image.
  4. If you have a blog, just post it up on your blog and comment below.
  5. If you don't have a blog, just send it by e-mail it to me at im(a)kennysia.com

The script is not perfect but at least it should provide some form of geeky entertainment. I shall publish the best ones here in a few days time - depending on the amount of response I get of course.

So make me laugh, cheer me up... or something. :)

There were some errors on the last two boxes. But still a great idea.

It's working now. Not sure what the first problem was (all garbled up on the last two images). Sorry for spamming you with two comments in a row.

Last scene:

Kan! Lu mian tui chu liao! [ Fuck you! You don't need to go back my home now! ]

:P

My attempts at a cheer. Cool idea.

Unregistered

Something wrong with the script(I couldn't modify anything). But good try, nonetheless.

Unregistered

hahaha.... ok i'll see what i can do...

Unregistered

I think your script doesn't accept quotation mark, like " or ' will jam up all the fonts. Also the size of the text bar is too small :( I guess we really have to use our imagination there.

Anyhow I posted up one, hope it makes you laugh.

Hmm, after reading all the participant's work, including myself, I don't think anybody manage to be as creative&funny as Kenny's original post (no offence).

Kudos to Kenny, keep up the good work.
